WhoCanUse is a helpful tool to test the color contrast of different color combinations and informs you about the contrast ratio and the WCAG grading. While it might not be 100% perfectly accurate, it provides a good indication of how well the colors work for the various vision types. Interestingly enough, there are a lot of vision types that I wasn‘t aware of at all.
